Call 705-733-3355 or email email@example.com us to book your consultation time. Available times are from Tuesday to Friday in the afternoon, Friday evenings and Saturdays.
After your consultation, a non-refundable deposit of 30% of your total wedding order will reserve your date and time. You can also deposit a $100.00 (to be later applied towards your wedding order) to reserve your date. Consultation booking is required at the time of deposit.
With the advancement in technology and easy access to transportation almost all flowers are available throughout the year. Very specific seasonal flowers are of course available only in their season. Please see section on All About Flowers
We ask that you bring a picture of your wedding dress, bridesmaid dresses, colour swatches, venue and a specific wedding date and time. Additional pictures of bouquets, centerpieces and flowers are always helpful in designing for your personal style.
Flowers & Sense do have a limited amount of rentals. We carry candelabras, aisle stands, unity candles, selection of vases and containers for centerpieces. We also work closely with a decorator who can provide you with chair covers, drapery, aisle runners and linens.
For centerpieces costs are a little more difficult to determine. A good rule of thumb is the centerpiece should be close to the cost of one meal from the venue per table.
Flowers & Sense has a large delivery area and can meet the needs for any bride in Ontario. We do free delivery of wedding flowers in Barrie and for a nominal cost can deliver anywhere outside Barrie.
We have found that for the majority of weddings the cost of personal flowers which includes the bride and groom, honour attendant, two bridesmaids, best man, two groomsmen, parents and grandparents usually cost out around six hundred dollars. For centerpieces costs are a little more difficult to determine. A good rule of thumb is the centerpiece should be close to the cost of one meal from the venue per table. Of course if you have a simple budget we will endeavour to provide you with great ideas to make your day truly special.
Your wedding consultation should be booked at least of six months before your wedding. At Flowers & Sense we only do three weddings a weekend to give each of our brides the attention they deserve.
You can have your bouquet preserved through a specialist at a cost to between $150.00 and $400.00 dollars. We suggest purchasing a glass or wooden trinket box, which can be engraved, to put a couple of blossoms from the Bridal bouquet and the Groom’s boutonniere.
